Hospital Visit

I've spent the last 2 nights and 2 days in the hospital helping out a friend whose having surgery. That's where I'm blogging from at the moment and I'll be here for another day. I actually had scheduled my first appointment with a personal trainer at the gym yesterday in an effort to ensure I get in shape, but I had to reschedule it to Wednesday I'll let you all know how it went.

I knew that I was coming here to be of service so I've taken some steps to make sure my energy level is at its maximum and this includes eating healthy! I've made sure to take all my meds and supplements at the regular time. I also know that when I eat big meals or greasy heavy stuff I get lethargic so to ensure I don't get really hungry to the point of craving bad stuff I've packed a whole bunch of string cheeses and kashi bars; I've also been popping a lot of fiber pills which do an awesome job of making me full on small amounts. I've been eating a lot of soup since it's conveniently available in the hospital. I'm basically not making a big deal of food, I'm just eating little bites of whatever is readily available throughout the day since I feel I'm here for a more important purpose.

During this hospital stay I obviously won't be going to the gym, so that would be a total of 4 days absent from the gym but my activity level has been relatively high here in the hospital. I've been running lots of errands for my friend that I'm helping out so I walk a lot, and there was a day where I was responsible for her 3 week old baby and I was on my feet for the majority of the time. I have a feeling this wednesday's weigh-in will also be another successful one!

That is really nice that you are staying with your friend like that. I hope she is okay.

Good for you for eating healthy with your food choices.
